The Summer/Autumn transfers thread 2020 aka TURN DOWN FOR WHAT(more)

Recommended Posts

Oh dear. This is getting a bit worrying now. It’s easy to blame Bauser but Warnock has spoken highly of him. Is it the old agent fees issue again? Just our terrible form the last couple of years? Surely we have a better pedigree than the likes of QPR and Bristol City? Last year has had such a massive impact on us hasn’t it? Feels like another transition season ☹️

It just seems we aren't willing to push the boat out to get a deal over the line. Sometimes you need to pay the player a bit more to get him up here. 

Buy ****, buy twice.

These players are signing long term contracts - 3 or 4 years. Are we unwilling to offer that after having our fingers burnt with the likes of Gestede? It’s terrible. Warnock is going to be going crazy.

Are people going to stop defending the club now and start asking the questions that we deservedly need answers to? This is getting humiliating. Warnock is identifying the targets and the club is messing every single deal up. If this was in any other organisation there would be dismissals being handed out left, right and centre. This is gross mismanagement.

And that could be the problem, this fixation of getting Ben Gibson back to MFC. The associated costs to this as I have always stated could be the detrement of being able to secure those who really could be useful for us.

I hope I am wrong but we all know how things have panned out for the last few seasons recruitment wise.

Maybe we should expect some further departures

Any club will have to offer Wigan Athletic at least £750,000 for Jamal Lowe. 

That's Jamal Lowe's price in Wigan's local today I know half the Championship will want him but Warnock can't resist him at that price wouldn't surprise me if we jump in the mix for him now. I just hope the next Wigan player on the list isn't Josh Windass he's their highest earner and Sheff Wed had a bid rejected yesterday for him.

Sure am glad we're on a better financial footing now, after cutting the cloth.

It's really helping.

I expect they cornered Grant Hall when he was drunk in the pub.

Perhaps that is why because they want security for longer than maybe we are offering and Gestede is a perfect example of getting your fingers burnt.

I do not believe we can not attract players but it seems our priorities might be wrong

I wonder if maybe, we could judge the transfer window at the end of the window, rather than deciding right now that we are going to be relegated because we have only signed one player, when there are weeks and weeks left and really nobody on here knows for certain who Warnock wants to sign.

We will probably re-sign Clayton and announce it with a huge fanfare. Brace yourselves.... 

Not Clayton so much but Ayala returning would be no suprise either!

Exactly this ... 

We have no REAL info this window .. So nobody knows if we were in for all or some of the alledged missed deals .. 

Let's be judgemental when the window is closed again ..

We were in for Moore, Goode & Williams, that's just well known.

    • The thing that gets me is if Swansea had sportsmanship they would of let us walk the ball in for a draw like Bielsa did a few years ago but they didn't as they are cheaters hope they aren't promoted horrible club with cocky fans who are attacking Bolasie asking for VAR 
    • Straight down the middle. He would have saved it if he'd remained his normal  statuesque self. He must go at the end of the season. Dud!
    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
